Yennik, Inc. is an independent information systems
auditing company that only works
only for federally insured deposit institutions; and therefore,
we understand the special regulatory requirements and security issues
placed on your institution. As
IT auditors, we
will perform and supervise the penetration-vulnerability study of your
for over 5,000 known vulnerabilities
with 25 new vulnerabilities added each week.
Your regulators require an independent
penetration-vulnerability test for any financial institution that connects
the Internet to the network.
Please complete the External - VISTA information request form to receive due diligence information about our company, VISTA agreement, and fees. All communication is kept strictly confidential.
FYI -The FDIC, NCUA, and the OCC do not have a requirement that financial institutions change penetration testing firms on a periodic basis. Any such decision would be up to bank management. Refer to http://www.yennik.com/fdic_10-18-16_rotation_letter.pdf, http://www.yennik.com/ncua_12-21-16_rotation_letter.pdf, and at http://www.yennik.com/occ_10-12-16_rotation_letter.pdf.
The VISTA focuses on a hacker's perspective, which will help you identify real-world weaknesses.
The penetration-vulnerability test (VISTA) meets the independent
diagnostic test requirements of the FDIC, OCC, FRB, and NCUA as outlined in the
Security booklet. The requirement states in part "High-risk systems should
be subject to an independent diagnostic test at least once a year."
If your institution is connected to the Internet, you have a "high-risk"
system because the world is connected to your network. The
VISTA penetration study and Internet security test is much more
sophisticated than just port scanning.
Security Test Audit (VISTA)
provides a penetration study for the known vulnerabilities on over 65,000 ports.
The VISTA provides your institution the independent
penetration-vulnerability test of your Internet connection required by the regulators, which is performed by an IT auditor with
34 years experience auditing IT departments for financial
penetration-vulnerability test? -
We have clients in 43 states and have more than 21 years experience as a former examiner. R. Kinney Williams is accredited by the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA) as a Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) and Certified in the Governance of Enterprise IT (CGEIT). Mr. Williams is also a Certified Financial Examiner (CFE) by the Society of Financial Examiners (SOFE.)
From an auditor's perspective, R. Kinney Williams personally reviews the VISTA results and
issues an audit letter to your Board certifying the results. The
test results indicate the severity of
the possible vulnerabilities as "Minimal" up to "Urgent" so
your network administrator will know which vulnerabilities need immediate
attention. Review the VISTA Phases and see how
VISTA will work for your institution. VISTA
is affordable and there is never a charge
if you are not completely satisfied with our service.
